I have some back issues of Billiards Digest and was wondering what they might be worth since I haven't seen any up for bid on Ebay lately?
The issues I have are: 1980, all but Feb.
1981, all but Feb.
1982, 1983, 1984 & 1985 complete
1979, Feb, May & Nov.
1978, Nov.
These are in mint perfect condition, any ideas? Back when I started collecting them, the magazine only came out every two months.

I also have a lot of Billiards Digest. Your issues are pretty old so they are more valuable. If you really want to sell them, I would probably put them up on a 7 day auction by complete year with a starting price of $30 - $50 per year or $10 per issue. I'm just guessing but my guess is they would bring in at least these prices. If you sell one year at a time that will tell you how much interest there is and give you an idea of the value. A good ad properly placed with photos and title is critical or it will get lost on E-Bay. Describing some of the articles will help too.

As a reference point, I sold 20-ish very recent issues on eBay for $41. Not all were in top condition. Before you sell, determine what your bottom line is on the mags. Then add no less than $50-75 to that number, and make that your reserve price.

Thanks for the info and that is exactly what I will do but first have to reread all of them. I plan to share anything of interest I find in them with the board.

Can you post it up here when you have them on E -Bay? - I would be interested in the auction.
